Miss America Finally Apologizes to Vanessa Williams 30 Years After Her Nude Photo Scandal

We were all a bit surprised when the Miss America Pageant announced that Vanessa Williams, who was crowned Miss America in 1983 but had to give up her crown in 1984 amid a nude photo scandal, would be judging this year’s competition. We guessed Williams harbored no hard feelings towards the organization and now it seems the Miss America organization of 2015 has the same sentiments.

During last night’s broadcast, Miss America CEO Sam Haskell issued a public on-air apology to Ms. Williams for everything that went down over 30 years ago. “I have been a close friend to this beautiful and talented lady for 32 years. You have lived your life with grace and dignity and never was it more evident during the events of 1984 when you resigned,” he said. “Though none of us currently in the organization were involved in it, on behalf of today’s organization, I want to apologize for anything that was said and done to you and to your mother, Miss Helen Williams. I want to apologize for anything that was said or done that made you feel any less than the Miss America that you are and Miss America you always will be.”

We’ve been patiently waiting for Rihanna’s Puma sneakers (you know, the creeper-esque ones she’s been wearing all about town) to hit shelves and they will soon. But to keep us interested as the September 25 launch date approaches, we have a look at the campaign for the collection, which feature’s Riri’s rumored beau Travis Scott. 

In the image, we see Rih perched on a block, showcasing her black and white Puma kicks, her back against a shirtless Scott who stands next to her in leather pants, covering his face as he looks downward. Rihanna’s latest shoe effort for the label is available online today (in the black and white colorway) at Puma.com. A few lucky people in NYC will be able to get their hands on the $120 sneakers (in all colors) from September 15 to 17 at a pop-up shop (limit one per person) in the East Village at 312 Bowery Street. Puma notes that select retailers will also carry the black and white colorway starting September 18.

The shoes are quintessential Riri and we can’t wait to finally scoop them up! Our credit cards are ready.

Kanye West might have grand plans to run for president, but he’ll probably struggle to get designer Anne Bowen and Naeem Khan’s vote.

The musician/designer/aspiring politician has caused quite the headache for the two labels, scheduling his last-minute Kanye West x Adidas Originals Collection (Yeezy Season 2) show at the same time as their shows on September 16 at noon.

Anne’s not impressed, implying to WWD that Kanye’s getting preferential treatment because of his celebrity status. “We have been prepping for a year for this at considerable financial, labor and commitment cost to our company,” she explained of the nuisance. (more…)
